I am a 45 year old grandpa of four.
I enjoy hiking and fishing. When asked why i want a transplant i replied “i wanna live long enough to take ALL of my grandbabies fishing at once so they can say to each other–remember when papa took us fishing that one time!”
I want to build memories with them of catching worms, minnows and crayfish in the creek. Blowing dandelion spores to the wind. And teach them how to cook.
I want them to remember a happy and active papa. Not a sick and miserable papa.
If you’re out there and willing to donate, God bless you.
